Happy Birthday little blog (and a couple of pictures of my reticule)!!!

Exactly one year ago I wrote my first ever blog post on here! I realized that just a couple of days ago when I was going to check up on something else, and I hadn’t thought of the fact that it must be getting close to a year now. That came as a surprise, and I found it a little hard to believe at first. It doesn’t feel like I’ve been doing this for a year! But apparently it is so.

When I first began I had no idea of how it would be. I’d never blogged before, and didn’t know how I would like it. But I do like it! Most of the time… 😛 And one thing I really do like is “meeting” all of you wonderful people! Without you this wouldn’t be much fun now would it?!

So happy birthday dear little blog! 😀

And then I thought I’d post a couple of pictures of my new reticule, as I have had some inquiries about it. It is a very simple one, without any decorations. I made this one also by hand, and I used the same fabric as for the dress. So they match each other nicely!

And then I lined it all as well.

So that’s it. I think I should have made it a little bigger, since it turned out smaller than I imagined it would. But it’s all right. 🙂

    Congratulations on a full year of blogging and thank you for sharing your dreamworld with us. It is a joy to find some kindred spirits in the world.

    I really like your elegant, handmade reticule. Thank you for showing us some pictures. From what I have read, reticules were usually quite small, so you are probably right in step. I made mine a bit larger, because I wanted to stow my camera in it; I have a penchant for trying to carry too much stuff around in my purse.

    Your trip to Florence is fast approaching. How exciting! I hope you have a fabulous time there. Safe travel to you. 🙂

    Thank you all so much! You are so sweet!

    Jennifer, I think you are right. They were probably pretty small. But like you I also wish to be able to cram my camera into it. I can do it with this one, but it wouldn’t have hurt to have made it just slightly smaller! 😛
